Agenda

Trademark matter

  • Question to legal@fp.o asking for permission to use our logo in a T-shirt contest entry at the Linux Foundation
    • TM counsel reports we can give a specific permission that is limited in scope to just this contest entry, without setting broader precedent.
    • Inclined to give a specific permission for this since (a) it was sought, and (b) seems like a negligible risk
    • Thanks to the community member who asked in advance!
    • QUESTION: Does the Board agree we can grant a specific, limited permission for the creator to enter these two designs in the LF contest?

AGREED: No objections. Paul to note to requester.
